Whenever you find yourself stuck on the site of the road, it would definitely be to your benefit to have collapsible safety cones tucked away in the back of your vehicle somewhere. This kind of safety item is ideal for all of the following situations:
A Roadside Emergency
The Need For a Towing
Marking Parking Spaces
Anything That Requires a Reflective Marker
When you are experiencing an emergency on the side of the road (especially on the highway) anything you can do to make your vehicle more visible to individuals who are driving is ideal. Reflective traffic cones are going to tell other drives that they need to slow down and move over into another lane if possible. It is to alert the drive that the car is not functioning and that there may be pedestrians walking around the vehicle trying to fix it.
Notification to Other Drives
These are really no different than construction cones that you see on the side of the road. They are placed just to keep you and everyone else on the road safe. This is especially true when you are on the highway and vehicles are moving a great deal faster.
Locating Your Car
If you’ve left your vehicle in a crowded parking lot or on the side of a long highway, the reflectiveness of these traffic cones will make it easy for you to find your vehicle when you go looking for it. The fact that they are collapsible means that they should fit conveniently in any vehicle without causing any problems or taking up any unnecessary room.
Utilized For Games
While safety is why these were created and the main reason for their usage, there is nothing wrong with having a few of these tucked away at home for when you feel like playing a sports game with your family and friends. These cones make great markers for just about any game you could want to play.
When you live on a side street or off road there may be times where your children are going to want to play in the street. While there is nothing wrong with that it is a good thing to have these cones to set out so vehicles coming down the street will see them and your children playing.
